Retta was so helpful and kept us informed. She was a great selling agent and didn't beat us around the bush, told us what we could get from our home and she was right! I recommend Retta Sanders to any Military folks moving to Sumter, or anyone at the Century 21 offices, they are truly great!

Retta is AMAZING!!! I did a lot of research on realtors in the Sumter area before choosing Retta and I am so glad I did. She is absolutely the best. Look no further, she is the one you want!! Retta is incredibly knowledgeable about the local area. We used her to buy our home. Based on our preferences, she worked tirelessly to find us exactly what we were looking for. We were new to Sumter so she helped to guide us through the neighborhoods and taught us about the local area. She found us the perfect home! Once we found it, she guided us through the buying process and made sure we were fully satisfied. I will definitely choose Retta again when it comes time for us to sell and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an EXCELLENT REALTOR!! Less ... More

I know Retta personally, as well (now) as professionally. I would not hesitate to get her to handle any real estate sales/purchases. She is very professional and personable. You will not be disappointed with her services.

I was overseas when I found out I would be moving to Sumter, S.C. and was put in contact with Retta. We gave her a small idea of what we were looking for and she took it from there. We received info on multiple houses before we got back to the states and were able to narrow our search. When we got to Sumter, Retta had a list of places for us to see that day that perfectly matched our wants and needs. We closed on a house three weeks later. Retta works hard, is extremely tentative to her clients and their needs and I would recommend her to anybody. Less ... More

First of all Retta is a professional. She knows the market. Many times she has previewed the homes she plans to show, and so the client's time is not wasted on properties that are fail to meet the buyer's needs. Retta understands value. If a property is overpriced she can justify it. She recognized in our case, a home that was underpriced. She has a good relationship with other realtors which motivates their cooperation when her clients are working under time constraints. She makes every effort to understand satisfy the needs and desires the buyer has for a home purchase. There is a reason that Retta Sanders was chosen recently as Realtor of the Year. She earned it.

Retta is the consummate professional and was amazing to work with. She was very quick to respond to our request, had an excellent range of beautiful homes to show in our price range, extremely knowledgeable about the local area, and very honest throughout the process. She was flexible with my challenging schedule and patient as we narrowed down our selection, but still helped us get our offer accepted in less than a week since our first meeting. I was unable to be in town during the house inspection and walk through, but Retta volunteered to go in my place, which was very helpful. She is not only an amazing realtor, but a delightful person, and I will recommend her to anyone moving to the area. Less ... More

I highly recommend Retta. She was extremely helpful with getting my house sold. I couldn't believe how fast it sold, she had it listed for approximately 30 days and had a buyer lined up. She was also very helpful in getting the necessary maintenance done for me which would have been otherwise impossible because I am out of the country and was not able to be there in person.

Retta and I met because of a PCS move to South Carolina. She all ready had a large list of homes to show my wife and I based on our interests and before we knew it she has driven us around town to show us nearly a dozen homes. She was more than helpful and knowledgeful about Sumter County and gave my wife and I great ideas of things to do and places to go. Retta placed my wife and I into a home that is perfect for the two of us with our dog and we have not been happier. After we purchased our home, Retta continued to help and support my wife and I to make sure our move in was successful and to ensure that the house was within our satisfaction (only had to fix the fireplace, not Retta's fault, builder issue). My wife called Retta with this problem and Retta continued to work with/for us to ensure our problems were fixed. Due to military service I know I will eventually leave Sumter and when I do I will be in touch with Retta to ensure my home is taken care of approprately. I fully reccommend using Retta if you are searching for a home. Less ... More

The best realtor I know. Ms. Sanders is such a pleasure to talk to. She not only knows real estate but she knows how to treat her clients. Our father passed away and we had to sell his house. We called up Ms. Sanders and she jump right on it. She was absolutely wonderful. She not only sold the house within 2 weeks but she understood that we had emotionals feelings letting go of the house. She step right in and helped us with those issues too. Thank you Ms. Sanders!! You are the BEST!!

Retta was the recommended agent for our corporate relocation. We were lucky to have her assigned to our team for the move from Illinois to South Carolina. Our first impressions of Retta was that she was friendly, outgoing and wanted to learn exactly what we wanted to find in a home in the Sumter, SC area. If she was not able to answer our call when we placed it, she always returned it within the same or next day. She developed a list of homes for review since we were still in Illinois and shopping via the internet to start. She helped us to narrow down what was worth our time to see in person when we flew in to review homes. She was dedicated to us during our week in Sumter and was willing to sacrific her personal time to make our deal work, when we did find a home that we placed an offer on. We are happily settling in to a great house, in a great neighborhood, that is close to work and it is because of Retta's love of her job and community, and her dedication to her customers. Retta would always be my pick for a real estate agent due to her caring nature and knowledge of the area. Less ... More

She was always available when I needed her and answered all of my questions no matter how silly they were. She worked around my schedule and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I couldn't have asked for a better agent!

Retta is excellent to work with, she has extensive knowledge on the local real estate market which will help you to buy / sell your dream property. She is not pushy at all and will make you feel comfortable to work with her for your needs. My personal experience in selling my property in South Carolina was bumpy due to the sluggish economic condition, however, Retta was able to work hard at it and get the best deal for me. During the process her positive attitude is the key for our success that you can't find with other agents. Highly recommended. Less ... More

I absolutely admired Retta!! She stayed on top of things the entire time, I knew that I could trust her advice, she was so thorough with everything. I felt like I was her only priority and that she put her all in helping me. One evening she stayed hours after closing time, making sure that things got done fast as possible. Retta was very honest with all my concerns, I knew right away that she was looking out for my best interest. I did not find one thing negative about her. Retta impressed me a few times with her negotiation skills. Retta always responded quickly to my calls. If your like me, very skeptical, and need someone that will work smart and fast, please call her. I promise, she wont let you down!!!!! Less ... More

Retta really helped us when we were building our new home. She has wonderful taste and knows what she is doing. Her experience really pays off. When asked, she will give you her opinion but will let you make the decision. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house.

When we moved to the area four years ago, Retta helped us find our home. She listened to what we wanted and only showed us houses that met our needs/demands. She is lovely southern lady who is a professional. Now as we prepare to move again, Retta was the obvious choice to sell our home. She is prompt, courteous and a business woman.

Retta was very professional, always had my best interest at heart,kept me informed regularly on interest in my home to sell and very pleasant to work with. She also helped me purchase a new home after mine was sold. I know she has been very successful with her yearly sales so I felt very confident she was doing her very best to get my house sold. She worked diligently to find my new home. I would highly recommend her to anyone and feel they would be completely satisfied. Martha Jones
